Year 13 trip to ‘Into Film’ festival

On Monday 18 November, Year 13 Film Studies students enjoyed a trip to the ‘Into Film’ festival in Coventry. This is a free, annual, nationwide celebration of film and education for 5-19 year olds. Students saw an exclusive screening of Rocketman, the musical biopic of Elton John’s colourful life, and went on location filming at the ice rink.

Head Girl Katie said, “The Into Film festival was great. A fantastic opportunity to see a film together. The film was also great and an innovative genre piece.”

Ten of our Year 12 artists spent the day in Birmingham on Thursday 12 September and made lots of first-hand drawings of the city. They are exploring the theme ‘Urban’ for their first project and we look forward to seeing the work that emerges from this experience.
